TYPF will be recruiting a new cohort of volunteers in early 2017! 

We annually recruit 50-80 enthusiastic young people based in the National Capital Region, Lucknow, Patna, and Benaras who are interested in engaging in social impact as volunteers. Our volunteers are usually between the ages of 18 and 25 and come from diverse backgrounds with a united interested in creating social change. Volunteers may be university students or from the communities where the programmes work. 

Volunteers play a critical role in running our social impact programmes on ground. We work hard to ensure a collaborative and engaging learning environment for all our volunteers to create social change. 

Over the course of 1 year, volunteers can expect to:

  • Develop their knowledge, understanding and research/writing skills on issues of gender, sexuality, health, urbanization, rights and governance and the relevance of these issues in their daily lives.
  • Conduct workshops with adolescents from low resource backgrounds on issues of gender and sexuality, life skills and health & hygiene, mental health, or digital media.
  • Design, evaluate and lead short term social action projects with TYPF’s mentorship and support.
  • Participate in policy platforms at the state and national level to advocate for youth issues to other Civil Society Organizations and Government agencies.
